"A & E and Bowel Dept."

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

Anything else?

My husband was rushed to A & E Thursday afternoon, with acute pains in lower part of body. The staff were fantastic, they put him on morphine, saline drip to relieve pain, x-ray, blood tests and heart machine attached. I was kept informed all the time what was happening. Considering the department was busy. Before I left they had found a bed on the bowel ward. He also has had a scan and further tests are ongoing. The staff were professional and kind. I would like to thank them all for there outstanding work. They all do a wonderful job under a lot of pressure and stress.
